Is Kasper Schmeichel set To Leave Nike?



Unbranded boots usually indicate that a player is set to leave a brand. However, even though he also taped over the brandings of the tongue and the ACC logo, it's not certain that he leaves his boot supplier Nike for at least two reasons.

First, he switched between different boot silos in the past few weeks (Nike Magista Opus, Nike Tiempo Legend). So, second, as he definitely got problems with his boots recently, it might be that the time span was too short for Nike to create custom boots for him and that they therefore provided the goalkeeper with this unique boot combination.
